security janet napolitano will remain in her post for obama's second term according to white house officials. napolitano's and who prefers to serve as arizona governor, has been criticized by immigrant rights advocates for presiding over a record number of deportations in the 2012 fiscal year. in a statement, a representative from the national day labor organizing network said -- the news napolitano's staying on comes as the obama administration is said to be preparing to unveil a new push for immigration reform in the coming months. federal prosecutors have dropped the charges against the computer programmer and cyber activist aaron swartz following his suicide on friday at the age of 26. in an e-mail to the boston globe, his attorney wrote the dismissal was "too little too late," saying it "would have been welcome this time last week." iran supports was facing up to 35 years in prison for sneaking into the massachusetts institute of technology and downloading millions of articles provided by the non-profit research service jstor. his family says prosecutors are partially to blame

. >> woodruff: there's one week left until washington plays host to president obama's second-term inauguration. the preparations on the west front of the capitol building are well under way, getting set for the president, hundreds of distinguished guests, and a huge crowd. celebrities will star at a series of special events, despite the fact that fewer than half the 1.8 million visitors who showed up for the historic first inaugural four years ago are expected. still, the president's private fundraising goal for the festivities is about the same as 2009. then, he raised $53 million from individual donations alone that were capped at $50,000 each. this year, the presidential inaugural committee plans to accept unlimited contributions from both individuals and corporations. the committee aims to raise $50 million. in comparison, the second inauguration of george w. bush raised over $42 million and took corporate donations of up to $250,000. late dollars we asked about criticism of how this event is being paid for this year. >> we are funding this event the same way as many civic events all aroun
reform, democrats say that will be up top priority in the near term. some speculating that obama will lay out the plan next month. also, remaining as someone security secretary. so far, both sides of the aisle are disappointed in how the president has failed to address immigration reform his first term. will president obama second be any different? turning me now, congressman bob good lad, chairman of the house judiciary committee which oversees immigration reform. okay. congressman, we have a list of things that apparently the president wants to push for, one requiring businesses to verify new employees in the country legally. two, create a guest worker program of low-wage immigrants and three, make immigrants seeking legal status pay fines and back taxes. can you support any of that? >> oh, all of that is well worth looking at very carefully, and that is exactly what we will do. republicans in the house are very enthused about doing immigration reform this year as well. how much we can do will depend upon how much we can find in common with our friends over in the senate and with the wh

president obama held the press conference of the first term nrk some respects a nearly perfect encapulation of what a reckless man he is. there are three points that we can take away from this. the first has to do with hypocrisy. obama blasted republican who's want to tie raising debt keeling to cutting spending. renz who do so, obama said they risk the full faith and credit of the united states and to do so is irresponsible. the consequences would be quote, a disaster, he made it sound like only an anarcihist would pose raising the debt keeling. >> what i will not do is have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the american people. the threat unless we get our way, unless you gut medicare or medicaid or if otherwise slash things that the american people don't believe should be slashed, that we're going to threaten to wreck the entire economy. look. i -- i don't think anyone would consider my position unreasonable here, democrats don't like voting for the debt ceiling when there is a republican president. but you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested somehow that we would

and former republican governor of utah jon huntsman. in the final news conference of his first term, president obama told reporters the u.s. can't afford a drawn-out debate over raising the debt ceiling, which could reach its lmit in mid february. "raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. these are bills that have already been racked up, and we need to pay them." president obama warns that if the debt limit is not raised or used as leverage by republicans, markets would go haywire, interest rates would rise, and checks to military veterans and people on social security would end. gop senate minority leader mitch mconnel reponded by saying, "the president and his allies need to get serious about spending, and the debt-limit debate is the perfect time for it." traders will get their first opportunity to react to comments at the market close yesterday by federal reserve chairman ben bernanke. among the highlights, the fed chair says, the federal government is not out of ammunition
obama will be sworn into office for his second presidential term, and we continue our look back at great inaugural moments. here is the first president who was born in the 20th century, john f. kennedy. >> let the word go forth from this time and place to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of americans born in this century, tempered by war h disciplined by a hard and bitter feast, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the small undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed and to which we are committed today at home and around the world. >> wow. later in that speech jfk said another of his most famous lines, ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. it's a line he paraphrased from george stmplt john, the head master at his prep school. i learned that nugget while researching for my book, "jack kennedy, elusive hero." does that make a difference? search "cost of financial advisors" i learned that nugget while researching for my book, "jack kennedy, elusive

-out, andrea, and certainly a big part of president obama's second term agenda. >> jay carney has said it's going to be closer to the noon hour, so we're fwrafl for that. it will at least precede our program. all politics being local as tip o'neil would say. ruth, let's talk about the president's news conference yesterday because he said i am want negotiating. i'm not going to give house republicans anything for raising the debt ceiling. it's on them. if they want to take the heat for veterans benefits and social security benefits not getting to people, what game of chicken are we playing here? >> really high stakes game of chicken is what we're playing here. i had the occasion of going back and reading actually the president's first news conference after he became president, and he is talking then about his overtures to republicans and how he hopes he can create habits of good behavior. well, it's been four long years, and that was about the feistiest press conference spurred by nothing other than he just really wanted to send this signal once again. his message was i'm not backing down,
during the new obama term a different approach? we understand everything we do from here to washington could be , could backfire but in the context from the collective commitments to preserve the freedom of speech, fundamental principles of the separation of powers support, given the situation in venezuela, are you expecting something different for these new for years in the administration? >> he just articulated a question that i couldn't quite articulate that is precisely the one i was hoping. >> let me answer as blunt end quickly as a possible. the victim and the beneficiary of the growing irrelevance basically they've declined in stature and importance has sort of them less open to observation and criticism because it is becoming less and less relevant. i think it's difficult i honestly don't know how you turned the corner to make it -- i do think giving a much more -- to take the case without the commission to show me what we are working on as the next quarterly i think that could be a test case for demonstrating the only thing that works and could sort of hopefully reinject and a

president obama stepped into office, he faced a global financial crisis. when term number two begins, his next battle will be making sure another financial meltdown doesn't happen. alison kosik has more. >> reporter: the challenge, prevent another meltdown to the financial system. how? reform the way wall street does business. but the debate over wall street reform comes down to paperwork. regulation. president obama wants a lot of it. he says we need new rules and regulations put in place during his first term to hold wall street and the big banks accountable and protect consumer and the u.s. economy. >> after all we have been through, i don't believe that rolling back regulations on wall street will help the small businesswoman expand or the laid off construction worker keep his home. >> reporter: republicans in congress want to cut obama era and even bush era regulations which they dismiss as unnecessary red tape. two laws are at issue here. dodd-frank and sarbanes-oxley. dodd-frank is the signature financial reform of president obama's first term. it set up the consumer financial prot
you action, sir? >> you know, it just sad this is what president obama is going to become in his second term. he seems to be the only person in washington that wants to talk about the nation defaulting on its debt. i think there's nothing that could be more irresponsible for somebody to suggest that america would default. i don't want us to do that. but just remember the debt ceiling the fact that we're hitting up against this max on our credit card again is a symptom of the spending problem in washington and president obama doesn't want to recognize that that problem exists. >> when you say no one is talking about defaulting on the debt, does that also include letting the debt ceiling lapse? >> well, you know, larry, what we're once again up on the debt ceiling. we have been here before, a year and half ago we were having this debate again. i supported a plan cut cap and balance that would have focused on solving the problem. but clearly we haven't sold the problem and credit card is maxed out again and president obama wants to get that money from china and send the bill to the
. >> reporter: in the first press conference of his second term, president obama wasted little time scaring the day lights out of millions of americans who rely on government paychecks for one service or another, of the consequences of a u.s. default. >> may not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners. food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down nuclear materials wouldn't get their paychecks. >> reporter: the president's statement is speculative and not true because, frankly, no one knows what programs will be short changed if the u.s. can't meet its payment obligations. it's never happened before. but here is what we do know courtesy of the bipartisan policy center. if congress fails to raise the debt ceiling the government can spend only what it received in daily revenues each day. those revenues won't cover about 40% of government debt obligations for the month. the treasury would have to pick and choose between more than 100 million monthly payments to figure out which ones to cover. the only payment virtually guaranteed is th

for joining us. president obama took on the single greatest threat to the economy today, the republican party. the president used the conference in his first term to throw down the gauntlet, and after confusion, president obama set the record straight on the debt ceiling. >> now the other imposition is called the debt ceiling. something most americans had not heard of before two years ago. so i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> and of course republicans tried to trick americans into believing the debt ceiling was a blank check or magic credit card for the president to go spend whatever he wanted to spend. of course, the united states constitution gives the power to spend to congress. the result is the money congress has already borrowed. president obama explained to the american people in congress how they're trying to do their actual jobs. >> these are bills that are racked up. and we
of his first presidential term, president obama went on offense warning republicans not to play politics with the debt ceiling. here is some of what he had to say. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners. markets could go haywire, interest rates would spike for anybody who borrows money, every homeowner with a mortgage. it would be a self-inflicted wound on the economy. so to even entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd. >> well, the president has got to get past the debt ceiling in order to achieve his second term agenda, but how does he do it when some republicans are threatening shutdown? chuck todd and howard fineman. chuck, you know, i get the sense i was listening to the late
not said whether they will stay on for another term. that's four possible nominees for president obama to answer critics who say there's a lack of diversity in the second-term choices. >> i'm very proud that in the first four years we had as diverse, if not more diverse, a white house and cabinet than any in history. i intent to continue that. i would suggest that everybody just wait until they have seen all my appointments, who's in the white house staff and who's in my cabinet before they rush to judgment. >>> the president has already nominated four people to cabinet posts. all of them are men. collectiont proves durable can be softer than ever. we can get for less and spread that softness even further. turns out, we can do even more than we thought we could. because this is the year of doing. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. roll out the new year with free whole home basic carpet installation on three rooms or more. we create easy to use, powerful trading tools for all. look at these streaming charts! they're totally customizable and they let you visuali

than i did. it is absolutely vital, especially in a second term strategically, politically, morally, pragmatically that he president obama, pick this fight. this certainly compounds the view that the republican party and its operatives are in the pocket of an unreasonable uncompromising national rifle association. so it's a good fight to pick and my only point was i think sometimes there's a self marginalization, because i think this is an all-american question that is worth though fight. >> jennifer: i totally get that. point well-taken on that. there are two conversations, i'm guessing, that go on inside of the white house in the inner circle. one is do you pick this fight and lose and are you weakened for other agenda items down the road? and the second one is how much political capital do you spend on this fight, if this is the first fight out of the barrel? do you know what i'm saying. >> yes. i think there are three big fights moving forward. if one believes the president was so horrified and moved and angered at what happened in nowtown, and the stars ar

't a hostage and at the final press conference of his first term monday president obama rejected any negotiations with republicans over the debt ceiling. >>> at the same time, fed chairman ben bernanke has been pressing the case for raising the debt ceiling. speaking at the university of michigan on monday, he warned the u.s. economy isn't out of the woods yet and is still at risk from political gridlock. >> raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. it doesn't create new deficits. it doesn't create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family trying to improve its credit rating saying, oh, he know how we can save money. we won't pay our credit card bills. not the most effective way to improve your credit rating. >> we're getting strong words from fitch saying that any delay would prompt a formal u.s. ratings review. and that the congress and the discussions themselves are undermining the otherwise strong u.s. growth outlook. now, former obama administration members are weighin

that will continue. today, there are articles that obama is willing to look at 19 executive orders in terms of enhancing reporting and all of these kinds of things. the question though in terms of how do you move a comprehensive package, there's great uncertainty about where can it even begin. can it start in the senate. harry reid said yesterday in the "wall street journal," i don't know if this can pass. in the house, it is republican controlled, it is unlikely. you already see the white house kind of shifting their focus away from things like assault weapons bans and policies that strengthen background, maybe some of the policies that there is more bipartisan agreement on because it is going to be tough if you don't know where to start, how do you move it forward? >> bill: i think what they recognize is they cannot count unbelievably so, again after what we've been through in terms of these mass killings in aurora colorado, and newtown connecticut and other places i think you reported yesterday there have been 900 people killed by gunfire? >> it is 33 are killed a day by gunfire. so in t
